Scene in Atlanta (II)

Here are some pictures from an Atlanta trip recently. There’s a post from my first Atlanta visit last year here.

Love, Peace & Joy

Sweet Birthday

Today was a sweet reminder of how much I am loved and appreciated – I think I forget that sometimes. I was happily overwhelmed with kindness, well-wishes, yummy food and desserts, and most importantly the nurturing love of friends and family. May I press on toward the beautiful future God has planned for me.


I’m no math nerd but I couldn’t resist celebrating pi day today. Today was extra special because March 14, 2015, is the last day the U.S. date will align with the first five digits of pi until 2115.

I’m thankful for new and old friends, and yummy pies of course. Cheers ❤

I woke up early and decided to go on a walk while most people were sleeping in for the holiday today. With no particular destination in mind, I picked a direction and just kept walking. First through the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), where I stumbled on some cool art. After walking in Bolton Hill I decided to head to Druid Hill Park. It was a refreshing and peaceful walk, and I absolutely enjoyed the change in scenery over the 4 mile walk.


My colleague’s novel excerpt, PURE, made the Top 100 in the General Fiction category of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Woot! Could you please take time to read and review her novel excerpt? You won’t be disappointed. I promise!

This weekend was the annual ‘Flower Mart’ so I decided to check that out, especially since the event was held within a block from where I live. I expected to see more plants and flowers than were present. Nonetheless, a few things caught my attention.

I saw marigolds, and had a nostalgic moment – my mother planted these every year when I was a child.
